Ben Welter - Thursday, August 20, 2015

Dr. Pirouz KavehpourIn partnership with Southern California Edison, a team of UCLA engineers has received a $1.62 million grant from the California Energy Commission to build a hybrid energy storage system that combines compressed air and thermal energy storage technologies. The system will store energy produced by renewable sources such as solar and wind and then transmit the energy to the grid when demand is high. 

Dr. Pirouz Kavehpour, professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering, is the lead investigator. The system will be built on the Cal Poly Pomona campus.
